- That's How They Do It in Dixie: The Essential Collection
Issued in 2006, this 12-track compilation serves as a very concise overview of Hank Williams, Jr.'s decades-spanning career. Specializing in a rock-tinged brand of country that is notably different from his legendary father's spare, twangy sound, Hank Jr. nonetheless attempts to bridge those styles on "Tear in My Beer," a shuffling tune penned by Hank Sr. that finds the pair singing on the same track (think Natalie Cole and Nat "King" Cole's famous duet on "Unforgettable").
In addition to classics such as the singer' s gritty theme song "My Name is Bocephus," this Hank Jr. set offers up two new recordings--the rowdy title track, which features appearances by Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson, and other young country luminaries, and the stomping "Stirrin' It Up." Though its short track listing keeps it from being truly "essential," THAT'S HOW THEY DO IT IN DIXIE makes for a fine introduction to Bocephus that is tailor-made to popular 21st-century tastes.
